Along with Black Friday comes the start of the Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle drive.
Bell ringers can be found locally at Wal-Mart and Brookshires, as well as area shopping malls.
Volunteers are sought to not only ring bells, but assist with purchasing items on Angel Trees, which attempts to match up volunteers who can supply special requests for specific individuals.
Local Salvation Army offices are located in Greenville, Paris and McKinney. The Greenville office can be reached at 903-455-1875; in Paris, 903-784- 548; and in McKinney, 972-542-6694.
